Welcome to SAM's own Old Timer message list, SAMTalk.

( see SAM_TALK Information page here )

A message list is a forum by email allowing many users to meet online and share ideas, experiences and friendships.

The way it works is that you sign up for the list by sending a blank email addressed to:


and your email address is listed by the service and any message sent to SAMTalk_Forum-subscribe@yahoogroups.com is "echoed" to ALL the subscribers, including you since you just became one!

Ideas, drawings, photos get shared with everyone and the group expands the knowledge of Old Timer modeling to everyone. It's like having a seminar on Old Timer modeling show up every day in your mailbox!

Modelers Share Techniques, Ideas and helps solve Problems

Need to know how to laminate balsa for strong but light curved surfaces? Need to know which is the best prop to use for an Ohlsson 60 Special? Ask our forum and be prepared to learn from modelers who have been solving these problems for over 50 years!

If you're going to be away from your email for a weekend or longer, unsubscribing keeps your inbox from filling up with messages while you're away.
